NAGRA-KUDELSKI’s myCinema digital content distribution system has announced its full slate of films a year after it’s launch, teed off by the James Franco feature Zeroville, which the actor both directed and headlines.
Originally, Alchemy took domestic rights at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival to Zeroville months before the company capsized due to bankruptcy. Since its pick-up at TIFF, Zeroville unfortunately became entangled in Alchemy’s financial woes and was thrown into distribution limbo until the US distribution rights were recently acquired by NAGRA. The pic will hit cinemas in September. The comedy based on Steve Erickson’s novel about a young actor who arrives in Hollywood during a transitional time also stars Seth Rogen, Megan Fox, Joey King, Will Ferrell, Dave Franco, Danny McBride, and Jacki Weaver.
myCinema delivers films over the internet which individual theaters can then licenses for any number of weeks of play. myCinema also markets the pics for exhibitors and the distribution system is currently available at 500 screens throughout the U.S. and Canada.

James Franco and Seth Rogen, the creative duo behind such cult comedy hits as The Interview and This is the End, are Hollywood bound in the first trailer for Zeroville, a biting satirical period romp hailing from Franco himself.
It’s pitched as his most ambitious directorial effort to date, and after clocking eyes on the extensive first trailer, we’re inclined to believe those claims. Featuring a host of regular faces in Jacki Weaver, Megan Fox, Craig Robinson, Will Ferrell and Danny McBride, Zeroville is set against the Tinsel Town of ’69 where Ike “Vikar” Jerome stars out on a journey that offers up tragedy and discovery in equal measure.
Placing a laser focus on celebrity culture and all things Hollywood, Seth Rogen is on board as a character known as Viking Man – “gatekeeper to all the right parties, a cigar-chomping surf hippie; Vikar’s eccentric Hollywood guide” – while the casting sheet reveals the larger-than-life personalities of Rondell, (Will Ferrell, Dotty (Jacki Weaver), Financier (Danny McBride) and femme fatale Soledad (Megan Fox). There’s also a Wim Wenders cameo buried in today’s first-look.
